Introduction

AQA Computing: Module 3 'Peters Petrol Pumps' By Gavin Smith Candidate: 4179 Centre No: 61101 Contents Front Cover 1 Contents Page 2 Introduction to Module 3 The Programming Language 4 Designing Phase: Data Dictionary 5 6 Designing Phase: User Interfaces & Button Identifiers 7 8 9 Designing Phase: Evidence & Explanations 10 11 12 Implementation / Testing: Test Plan 13 14 15 16 Pump In Operation 17 18 19 Introduction to Module This module consists of a practical systems development project which will rely on the candidate (myself) to design and implement a petrol pump that will show a number of attributes through a customer's and cashier's interface. The model must be implemented according to the customer's specification. This program (petrol pump) must have the following features: * Records the amount of petrol dispensed * Records the amount of petrol sold * Records the current price of petrol (per litre) * Records the daily total of petrol dispensed/sold * Has a feature that allows the petrol pump to be reset I will design and implement an appropriate computing system and provide sufficient documentation to demonstrate the: * Design * Implement / Test I must produce this program using a high level language, the language I will use will be discussed in a later part of the write up. I will produce brief documentation on the following: * Design o Definition of data storage requirements o User interface design for console and petrol pumps o Algorithms for: * Pump operation * Console operation * Simulating the seven segment LCD display * Production of daily totals * Implementation / Testing o Details of test plan with explanation, and evidence of testing having been carried out o Clearly set out and comment, where appropriate, program listing The Programming Language As the specification indicates that I must use a high level language, I had to choose from a series of different languages, a high level programming language is defined as a programming language that, in comparison to low level programming languages, may be more abstract, easier to use, or more portable across platforms. ...read more.

Test 5: Ensuring that the console display is working correctly ==> Test 6: Testing the seven segment LCD digits ==> Test 7: Complete test scenarios with eight customers I will set the mentioned test and a set of other tests in a table below. In the table I will present a test ID, the test, the expected outcome, actual output, and the resolved / pass Test ID Test Expected Output Actual Output Resolved / Pass 001 Set price to 'ABC' Initiates the pricePerLitre to default (000.0) Initiates to default (000.0) V 002 (Test 2, 5 & 6) Dispense petrol above 100 Litres Seven segment LCD display will present incorrect figures, although normal display on cashier console will function correctly Seven segment LCD presented problems, with incorrect figures V Resolved - added code to stop petrol exceeding over 100 litres 003 (Test 1) Dispense petrol after previous transaction before the pump has been reset pumpStatus = will be "Awaiting Payment", therefore petrol will not be dispensed until the pump is reset Petrol pump will not allow further dispensing of petrol until pump is reset by cashier V 004 (Test 5) Set price of petrol to �1 per litre, and dispense 6 litres Petrol Dispensed = 6L Price of Petrol = 1.00 Total Price = 6.00 Petrol Dispensed = 6L Price of Petrol = 1.00 Total Price = 6.00 V 005 (Test 4) Set price of petrol to �0 per litre, and dispense petrol pumpStatus = "Price Is Too Low, Must Be In Between �0.01 and �1.99" pumpStatus = "Price Is Too Low, Must Be In Between �0.01 and �1.99" V 006 (Test 3) Set price of petrol to �11 per litre, and dispense petrol pumpStatus = "Price Is Too High, Must Be In Between �0.01 and �1.99" pumpStatus = "Price Is Too High, Must Be In Between �0.01 and �1.99" V 007 (Test 5) Start dispensing petrol, stop dispensing, and try and re-dispense immediately after stopping pumpStatus = "Pump Stopped, Replace Nozzle" pumpStatus = "Pump ...read more.
